Guest blogger for Jenni Bowlin Studios

I have the honor of being the guest blogger on the JBS Inspiration Blog today. As soon as I saw these gorgeous papers in the new Homespun line, I immediately thought of spring. At that time, my yard was still covered in lots of snow, and I truly was dreaming of spring - voila, a layout was born ;-) I love the awesome banner stickers and the beautiful butterflies and pearl stickpins, as well. I'm happy to report that the layout seemed to do the trick, as our weather this week has been gorgeous - sunny and in the upper 60's. Today, it's even supposed to hit the 70's - perfect!! Spring weather is my absolute favorite, and the kids and I are so happy to be outside every day again!

So, i'm taking the plunge and showing you all what a house i've become lol. I'm only 14 weeks, but I popped early and carried huge with Noah and Chloe too. This time has bee no exception - I was in maternity clothes at 6 weeks and have had a visible baby bump since around that time, too. This was taken on Wednesday - I had to wear green for St. Patty's Day, of course ;-)
My blog schedule at AMM got switched around a bit, so my tissue paper flower tutorial is not up yet. I promise to post it when it is, though.
Hope you all are enjoying beautiful spring-like weather in your neck of the woods, too!
